Tally Rosenfeld

Tally is a PhD student in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, at the Technion.  Her research is at the interface between microfluidics and medical diagnostics. She combines analytical and experimental work to develop new models and methods for electrokinetic transport (i.e. motion of liquids and molecules in response to electric fields) in porous media. These methods enable sample focusing and accelerated binding kinetics, and serve as the basis for low-cost, rapid, and highly sensitive diagnostic devices. In the years to come, Tally hopes that her research will enable to bring advanced molecular diagnostics to under-resourced and rural areas
